Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

320 free Avios for everyone via Iberia’s e-shopping mall

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Iberia, BA’s sister airline, recently launched its own online shopping mall called Iberia PluStore.  This is very similar to the British Airways Gate 365 operation, allowing you to earn a few Avios by funnelling your online shopping via their platform.

There are currently two very generous offers on Iberia PluStore which allow you to earn Avios points purely for signing up to a service.  There is no obligation to make a purchase.

Before we continue, please remember the following:

You will need an Iberia Plus Avios account to take part.  If you don’t have one, you can sign up via the Iberia home page.

If you use a new Iberia account, you will not be able to move the Avios across to BA or until your account is 90 days old.

After 90 days, you can use ‘Combine My Avios’ on, or to move the points out of Iberia.

The first is Amazon’s BuyVIP service.

Amazon is offering 165 Avios in Iberia Plus just for registering for this Spanish ‘discounted fashion buying club’.

Click here to be taken to the Amazon Buy VIP page and then click ‘Shop Now’.  If you have trouble getting through to the PluStore, change the language option on to ‘Spain – English’.

Signing up only takes a few seconds – all it wants is your name, email address and whether you prefer male or female fashion deals!

You should be able to follow the instructions in Spanish.  However, remember that Google Chrome has a translate option if you right click.

The second is Showroomprive.

Showroomprive offers 154 Avios in Iberia Plus for signing up.  It is a similar service to Amazon’s BuyVIP, offering exclusive online fashion sales.

Click here to be taken to the Showroomprive page and then click ‘Shop Now’.

Again, signing up is a 30 second affair and you are good to go!

    Just a heads up for anyone heading up or part of a BA Exec Club household account – BA will not allow you to combine your IB Avios into BA Avios. There indeed seems to be mention of this in the “combine” t&c’s

  • harry says:

    You should wake up this morning with 2 emails from IB per a/c, one relating to Amazon & the other to Showroomprive:

    Estimado/a harry,

    Showroomprive nos ha informado que realizó una compra el 29/12/15 y que los Avios correspondientes se encuentran pendientes de aprobación.
    ID de la compra:17543358

    if they don’t arrive, you have blooped up & have time to do it again today.

    • Andrew (U) says:

      Was just about to post same thing, got my two ‘tracking’ emails this morning! Thanks Raffles!!

      • Choons says:

        I didn’t get any but did not sign up until around 10:30 last night, so am guessing will get them tomorrow.

    • Andrew H says:

      Yep, I got my emails in the early hours of the morning 🙂

  • Leo_C says:

    Could they have been hit too much by HFP users ? I cannot get onto it now however i log in?

    • harry says:

      The key things are go in through Spain-Spanish language (MUST DO THIS)
      and if no-go, try a different browser/ try several times/ try later

      For those who didn’t get the success emails, make sure you go in through Compra ahora (red box)

  • Steve says:

    Amazon link proving to be a nightmare. Have entered uk amazon password, (which I guess is the one they want) but also tried iberia pw etc etc but I get a message asking me to re enter password with an additional number/letter code that appears on screen and then I am into ground hog day – same message comes up every time. I’ve tried logging out and re-logging in but am getting nowhere. Any suggestions please?

    • Danny says:

      I encountered the same problem with Amazon, as it kept saying that I have used the email address before (with Amazon UK). I just used a different email address last night and the transaction had tracked this morning.

    • Andrew H says:

      Instead of using your existing Amazon account, just trying registering instead. Select the registration option with the button ‘Hazte Socio’. That worked for me. Just make sure you unsubscribe from emails later.

  • Steve says:

    Further to my earlier message I finally cracked it after 90 exasperating minutes. Persistence is the key word….I just kept re-entering the info. Eeeesssshhhhhh! lol

  • David says:

    I managed to do it all on Chrome but now I have gone into do partners account I am getting, page not available for the iplus store sign in ? Any ideas?

  • DaninMCI says:

    I hate to declare this dead as I’m sure there is a work around but even trying different browsers and using AndrewH’s instructions I can’t get it to work. If I log into the english version on Chrome it will show the Amazon offer but it errors out. If I log in using the alternate methods it won’t show the Amazon offer. Weird.

    • harry says:

      It’s not difficult if you read the tips in the thread

      The key things are go in through Spain-Spanish language (MUST DO THIS) – IE CHANGE LANGUAGE TO SPANISH IN SPAIN IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HAT I MEANT 😉
      and if no-go, try a different browser/ try several times/ try later

      For those who didn’t get the success emails, make sure you go in through Compra ahora (red box)

      Or Raffles’ tips, or Andrew’s, or many others

      Essentially, read the thread lol

      • Andrew H says:

        Off topic, and further to the discussion about a forum yesterday…. I have no interest in seeing a forum here, but what would be great is if you could receive emails every time there’s a reply to a post. This would save having to skim through the whole thread looking for new posts. For example, Harry has replied to a post from yesterday half way up the thread (which is where it appears). I only found it by chance by doing a manual search for posts marked 30 Dec, something I rarely do.

        I could be in the minority on this of course!

        • Rob says:

          You used to be able to subscribe to all comments (that functionality was removed when I changed the mailing list system last January) but that wouldn’t have helped you in this case. There is no way of tracking replies to specific comments as far as I know.

        • harry says:

          I would be happy if the last 20 posts showed
